LAP 13A 2G SP SWITCHED SOCKET + 3.1A 2G USB CHARGER WHITE £7.50 each (Multi buy discount) Screwfix

Found 20th Sep 2017
Was looking for some 2G sockets with USB and found this multi buy deal at Screwfix, one socket is £12.99 but if you buy 2 or more the price drops to £7.50.
Not as good as the 2 for £14 deal posted earlier which has expired.

Nice find op for the 3.1amp. I presume this charging rate is shared across the 2 usb’s
I personally don't like single pole sockets. Double pole always better safer
Bought two last week but having difficulty fitting to existing 25mm back boxes where cables enter at the top.

Remove socket front, remove metal back box and chisel some out the brick work. Insert cable in through the back of the back box and refit.
Just picked up 2 from local Screwfix, 2 mins walk from office. Thanks op

And yet the Wickes cc deal at £6 went stinky hot... hotukdeals.com/dea…161

Some might like the slower charge, beside the bed charging maybe , and might give longer for the battery.

If you're not in a hurry for them, you can pick up these ones for £6.60 delivered:
electricalcounter.co.uk/pro…BwE

Scratch that, it looks like delivery is free, but only if you spend over £90

Do the USB's on these power down with the switches? Unlike a computer there's obviously no need for them to have constant power to detect a printer, mouse, etc. being inserted.
The position of the power switches being as they are, a lot of things are going to block them. For bigger powerline network adapters for instance, you end up having to buy a short extender so you don’t have to play Russian roulette turning on the socket before you plug it in.

Better to have switches offset to the side.

I have decided against fitting these in my home and the industry seems undecided if they are safe or not. Some are certainly not. electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk/med…pdf

I'm with you on this one although Crabtree do sell some. They are available at around £20 to the public. Usual excellent Crabtree quality.. A customer presented me with a bag full of LAP switches/sockets and outlets he had already bought. I wasn't impressed with the build quality at all.
Is the USB circuitry only on when the switch is on? I predict not. In which case, it's akin to leaving a regular charger plugged in permanently, whether a device is being charged or not.

No thank you!

I think the manufacturers are really missing a trick here - why not add a USB on off button? it wouldn't be difficult. Not being able to turn off the transformer puts me off - that and the apparently dodgy design, as previously mentioned, going on out there.

If you check a lot of iPhone lightening leads, they aren't suitable for over 2amp. This is why many cheaper (and also some not so cheap) leads fail quite quickly - I'm told they have a cut out fuse built in which is not replaceable?
I got these guys and most of the USBs never worked or stopped after a few uses, I ran out of time to uninstall them all before the return window was up so still in the walls, bit annoying really.
Personally I'd avoid LAP I bought 10 or so chrome double sockets within a couple weeks the switches had broken on 2/3 units some how..

I've replaced all of my socket and switches to LAP White ones about two years ago.


So far so good, no issues at all.
Sockets at the begging seem to be a little tight to fit the plug (which is actually good if you have kids) but after a while fits as it should.

Obviously you can't beat the price of multipacks from Toolstation or Screwfix
